Few People Know There’s A Wisconsin Island You Can Walk To

There’s really so much to see and do in Door County that it usually feels impossible to enjoy it all. It can be hard to prioritize where to spend your time, but if there’s one thing you put in the MUST DO column, it should be this. There’s a small island off the east side of the peninsula that you can actually walk to. The water is almost always low enough that a small causeway emerges, creating a land bridge between Cana Island and the mainland.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
